Oculus Rift DK1 Review
- by Team
There are some of us who are quite skeptical of virtual reality. We have no doubt that it offers a much more immersive experience than the one we get in the real world. However, unlike the real world, we don’t see the images coming out of the headset. We see the screen and the user’s head moving. However, unlike the real world, we are not actually experiencing anything physical. This is where Oculus Quest comes in. This new release of Oculus Rift, which is the company’s entry into the world of virtual reality, offers the very powerful chance to step into a future that has never been seen before in our lifetime. The world of VR is poised to be truly immersive once again.
“The power of VR is that it can truly create a sensation of reality,” says Tim Bajorowski, CEO of Oculus Quest. “The first thing you do when you put on your VR headset is to turn off the world of the real world. ” The world of the real world is what we see when we look out a window or pick up a smartphone. For something like a virtual reality headset, the world is not the same. We begin to feel an intense sense of presence, the sense that you are truly present in the room with your headset on.
Oculus says that about half the people who try out the Quest use the Rift DK1 — the first mainstream consumer Rift. This is the first version that was shipped directly to customers. The DK1 offers the best immersive experience that the Rift has ever offered in the past. However, the DK1 can feel a little stiff. It has a slightly uncomfortable weight, and it’s pretty thick.
That’s where our friends at NVIDIA, along with the amazing people at Oculus, stepped in and showed us how to make the Rift DK1 more natural. The developers, working with AMD and Qualcomm, made a version of the technology we call the HMD. They also have a new version of the headset coming later this year.

Theory (or “theory”) – the fundamentals of computer operation in the physical world, which are used to solve problems in a wide variety of practical contexts.
Computer Science – these fundamentals, applied as a method or discipline of study, are applicable to any form of software code or hardware. They can be used in teaching, research, and industry.
Software Engineering – these fundamentals, applied as a method or discipline of study, are applicable to any form of software code or hardware, but are applied to a limited range of software development tasks.
Theory includes the abstract theory and practice of the fundamental design and programming languages and tools, including C++, objective-c (macOS, iOS), and Java. The software engineering component is designed to enable the students to apply these concepts and algorithms to any variety of application domains, including both hardware development and software engineering. Computational science, computer vision, and information theory are also essential components of the program, and computer science degrees at all levels commonly include a strong computer science education. The theory is not taught in every department, but is a broad field, often requiring several years of academic study. Software engineering is usually taught in a different environment from research and industry.
Students typically learn the basic theory in a single summer semester, with a separate course of study, and then take a major course to master the software engineering portion of the program.
Aspects of research in software engineering often require students to learn both theory and computer science. This is a fairly complicated process that requires several years of formal studies.
Students at the bachelor’s and master’s level often learn both theory and computer science courses.
Future of VR, Mixed Reality
Abstract: The field of mixed reality is still in its infancy. With billions of dollars on the line, I want to share my experience and knowledge of mixed reality. This article will examine what challenges we’ve encountered in developing mixed reality headsets.
VR is a computer-generated sensory experience. Unlike augmented reality, which is the sensory aspect of mixed reality, computer vision is a completely standalone technology. While software augmentation is constantly improving, hardware augmentation is still a year or two away from reality. The first headset to ever hit the market was HTC Vive.
In early 2013, the first consumer-grade VR headset was released on Kickstarter. In fact, it wasn’t too long before the company was shipping a virtual reality headset.
In late March 2013, Google bought the ARCore technology.
Despite VR’s relative novelty, there are a lot of people who are familiar with a headset that can be worn on your head. They might look normal (as if they had a new set of goggles), but they’re far from complete and their software has yet to hit the consumer market. For these people, augmented reality may be as close as they can get.
Mixed reality is a slightly more realistic sense. You’re not wearing any headset (other than a pair of glasses) and are in your room with the computer and whatever you’re trying to work on.
If you are in VR, you have a view of the outside world, and you can work with a computer. The computer is generating the information that’s required to work in the VR environment. There is no computer-generated sensory experience. You can still feel and perceive what’s there, and you still can make decisions about what to do.
As with augmented reality, the future for mixed reality is still years from reality.
In the sense that computer vision has reached the point where it can be used to create 3 dimensional virtual reality.
In the sense that VR is allowing people to experience a real sensory experience that is a mixture of virtual and physical reality.
Rob Enderle: Product of the Week!
Every time you look at a book with a title that includes the name of a current computer hardware or software product – like NVIDIA’s GeForce – you can’t help but feel happy that you are reading the product page of a company that’s doing such wonderful things and are so well regarded in the industry. Unfortunately, every time you get to the end of the product page and you see the name of the company name, you’re usually overwhelmed with a series of product names to memorize and quickly look up – like NVIDIA.
You’d think people wouldn’t be able to help themselves too much – it’s a brand after all. NVIDIA is in a lot of places.
We’re just starting to get into the business of a product category that has taken this many years to get to where it is. NVIDIA is the most recognized brand name in the world of graphics hardware, and it has a great name to go with it. It is a name so well known, that even when you look at the company’s Wikipedia page it’s full of articles about NVIDIA. In fact, it really is difficult not to look at products with the NVIDIA logo to have a great name.
And so it is that I decided to make a list of all the NVIDIA products that I’ve seen and, in this way, try to help you remember the name of a product that you might not see everyday. If it’s your first time here with a new product or just trying to get ahead on a category, you’re not alone – I didn’t include a product that I have not seen either. If it seems like there are tons of things that have a name, maybe you should look up the information yourself.
